Paralysis

Paralyses


Presentation

  • RESULTS: Overall, 107 patients presented with IUVFP; 35.5% of patients reported symptoms of upper respiratory infection at the onset of UVFP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • When compared to pooled data for patients who underwent PM, the IL group was noted to have similar NGGA and CAPE-V scores at presentation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this report, the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and treatment of HIT are reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In all cases, the vocal fold paralysis was bilateral and the main presenting symptoms were stridor and shortness of breath necessitating intubation and tracheostomy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 66-year-old female with a previous history of basal cell carcinoma presented with right-sided progressive facial paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Splenectomy
  • Abstract A 71-year-old woman on aspirin presented for a distal pancreatectomy, splenectomy, and partial colectomy with a T8/9 epidural catheter placed preoperatively in 3 attempts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Heart Failure
  • Abstract Advanced heart failure (HF) is sometimes complicated with brain impairment because of a microthrombosis caused by decreased left ventricular contraction or reduced brain circulation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Shoulder Arthritis
  • BACKGROUND: Management of shoulder arthritis associated with deltoid paralysis can be very challenging.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Osteophyte
  • This disease is mainly asymptomatic but cervical osteophytes can sometimes cause dysphagia (DISHphagia), hoarseness, and even dyspnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Repeated magnetic resonance imaging as well as targeted workup failed to reveal a diagnosis. 20 months following symptom onset, after the patient's facial function slowly progressed to a complete paralysis, repeat magnetic resonance imaging revealed enhancement[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nephrolithiasis
  • Common clinical presentations of dRTA in the paediatric age group include polyuria, nocturia, failure to thrive, constipation, abnormal breathing and nephrolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • But he gave up further treatment after confirmed diagnosis. Our patient discontinued treatment and discharged.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • After treatment, 73 patients (69.5%) improved to grade I, 29 (27.6%) were at grade II or III, and only 3 (2.9%) remained at grade IV or higher.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A treatment algorithm is proposed in the end of this review for symptomatic anterior osteophytes caused by DISH in the mobile cervical spine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • For these patients, a definitive diagnosis of psychogenic low-back pain and hysterical paralysis as well as adequate treatment are clinically important to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • INTRODUCTION: There is no consensus on which voice outcome indicators (VOIs) should be used to compare the merits of the various surgical treatments for unilateral vocal fold paralysis (UVFP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • BACKGROUND: We used voice analysis and clinicopathological factors to explore the prognosis of unilateral vocal fold paralysis after thyroid surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The prognosis depends on the location and extension of the damage. Currently there is not a standardized treatment approach except the speech therapy, although, in some cases, the high-dose steroid treatment could be useful.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although chickenpox has a good prognosis, neurologic complications including encephalitis, acute cerebellar ataxia, myelitis and meningitis may seldom be associated with the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: The prognosis of psychogenic low-back pain and hysterical paralysis in adolescence is relatively good.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Hemiplegia is sometimes temporary, and the overall prognosis depends on treatment, including early interventions such as physical and occupational therapy. Read more about hemiplegia .[spinalcord.com]

Etiology

  • Unilateral frontalis muscle palsy is a debilitating disease with a heterogeneous etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Facial paralysis is a condition caused by a wide variety of etiologies, including neurologic, congenital, infectious, neoplastic, systemic, and iatrogenic causes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Etiology is unclear, but most likely multifactorial. Published by Elsevier Inc. KEYWORDS: Beach chair position; Cranial nerve deficit; Hemidiaphragmatic paralysis; Interscalene nerve block; Intraneural injection; Local anesthetic toxicity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Some authors have postulated that select cases of IUVFP have a viral etiology, but the causality has not been established.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This is a retrospective study of patients carried out on 16 patients suffering from unilateral vocal fold paralysis resulting from different etiologies. All patients were subjected to the protocol of voice assessment pre- and postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Fontanet, head of the Epidemiology of Emerging Diseases Unit at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. Other experts said the study fell short of proving causation.[nytimes.com]
  • Recommendations for HIV-Related Postexposure Assessment of Children within 72 Hours of Sexual Assault Review HIV/AIDS local epidemiology and assess risk for HIV infection in the assailant.[cdc.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • There is one pathophysiological pattern for a single temporal bone fracture in a subsite. The authors present a bilateral isolated different pathophysiological pattern sudden onset facial paralysis in a patient herein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Future studies to explore this pathophysiology are needed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this report, the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and treatment of HIT are reviewed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Prompt and astute diagnosis leads to proper management with simple myringotomy and can prevent unnecessary testing and other misguided treatments.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prevention The only way to prevent sepsis is to prevent infections or to treat them as quickly and effectively as possible.[sepsis.org]
  • Eye protection is of paramount importance to prevent vision loss in patients with impaired eye closure. Patients should be assessed for signs of depression and treated appropriately. Copyright 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including vegan diets, are healthful and nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases, not all families are aware of the nutritional supplements[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
